‘Sunlight and Shadow’ By William Merritt Chase 1884 {{PD}}

Has it seemed like life has become an obstacle course lately, with far more jumps, water hazards, and rope swings than you anticipated? We get relief today, in the form of knowing the wise course, and easily achieving the practical. Skills and common sense keep us on the path, with only a few surprises or unanticipated revelations, all of which enhance our own reach and ability to be effective. We think like gods, in harmony with Nature and our own best abilities–and there are no negatives, other maybe than not letting the looming of Pluto at station overshadow (because what he troubles us with is transitory and insubstantial as the blocking of the sun) what’s an otherwise positive day.

For those born with the Sun at 6 Taurus. Check your natal chart for the correct Sun degree (you may want to read both the degree number and the one that follows, if you have minutes on your Sun position–that offers a more complete picture of your year ahead). Dear Taurus, you make some brilliant moves this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, ones that may take others who see you as more sedate by surprise. What gives? You’re on your game mentally, spotting brilliant ideas and putting them into motion, and for once, you’re more than willing to speak up for yourself when someone tries to run over you. Any ‘New You’ characteristics are temporary, but last long enough to keep those who might otherwise run over you at bay, and to put in motion some excellent efforts and projects that will, with time, pay off. Look to the natal House ruled by Mars for hints as to ‘where the action’ is, or at least where it originates. Good luck!
